Mr. MAC's Predictions For Week Eight Including The Featured Albright Vs Stevenson Game

A Image
Only three games scheduled for Saturday, October 21st. They are Albright at Stevenson (Featured “Game of the Week”), Wilkes at FDU-Florham and Lebanon Valley at Misericordia. So here we go with our Mr. MAC picks of the week.

Lebanon Valley at Misericordia
The Dutchman from Lebanon Valley are coming off a high defeating the 2016 MAC Champions Stevenson last week . There is one rule in the MAC and that is if you are a team on top, everyone is gunning for you. That was the case last week for Stevenson. The stellar Dutchman defensive game gave the Stangs all they could handle in that 31-24 upset victory. And we expect the Dutchman to continue to ride that wave against the Cougars of Misericordia. The Mis's still have not made the jump from startup team in the MAC to challenging all opponents like Stevenson has done. To be sure, it is a difficult road hoe in recruiting, motivating and getting buy-in from the coaches and players. So we expect the Valley to take this one. Mr. MAC Says Lebanon Valley 35 - Misericordia 20. 

Wilkes at FDU-Florham
Homecoming for the Devils means they will have an advantage for this game in my opinion. I look for FDU-Florham to control this game but not run away with it. Wilkes, who has been struggling offensively this year could throw it all together for their first win of the year. I do expect the offense to have their best game of the year point wise. But the Devils have a slight edge on offense and defense that will give the homecoming crowd something to cheer about when the clock ticks 4pm. Mr. MAC Says FDU-Florham 28 - Wilkes 21.

Albright at Stevenson (Featured “Game of the Week”)
Stevenson is coming off a tough loss against Lebanon Valley where they turned the ball over seven times, that's right, seven times and still had a slight chance to win the game in the end. But it was not to be as the Dutchman ruled the gridiron last Saturday. Albright is coming off a loss two weeks ago against top rated Delaware Valley who seems to be rolling with ease. Albright rested last Saturday which will give them some extra gas in the tank in this contest. The Lions will bounce back for the DelVal game for sure. But I just heard that it is a sellout crowd in Owings Mills, MD already for the Mustangs homecoming. Fireworks for sure in this great fall contest that has come down to one touchdown in five of the last six games between these two teams. Advantage goes to who knows?? I am flipping a coin on this one and this is how the half dollar landed. Mr. MAC Says Stevenson 31 - Albright 28.
